The Joy and Power of Play: One Brick at a Time

About

A growing view in Australia is that play time is a waste of time or something a child must earn as a reward. Join Nine's leading journalist Allison Langdon as she challenges that thinking with Lego Master's The Brickman, internationally awarded academic Professor Pasi Sahlberg and SUPERCONNECT® creator Dr Kate Raynes-Goldie, all leaders in play, all Lego connected, and all creative and academic thinkers, who will explore the power of play at any age to positively impact our development.

They will discuss how play builds our creativity, divergent thinking,  adaptability and conflict resolution and show that children who can play in a safe and supportive environment become better communicators, team players and negotiators. They'll also demonstrate that it doesn’t stop at childhood, we can play at any age to help make stronger, more meaningful human connections.
